“A phantom plague”: Evangelicals are dying in frightening numbers
One would remain indifferent to evangelical christians were it not that their views are so toxic they deserve to run out of town for good.
Zionism, Evangelical Christianity, and the Trump dot.gov all seem to be doing their best to self-destruct: Israel, Christianity and the US/Trump realms are strangely becoming revolutionary via anti-revolution: we are essentially without a rationale for Israel, Christian monotheism and American crypto-fascist government..
Evangelicals just received an ultimatum: Abandon President Donald Trump, or betray your brothers and sisters in Christ.
The religious right think Trump will rid the U.S. of abortion, secularism and other great “sins.”
I think it’s a shame that “nones” mostly shrug while white evangelicals throw themselves into elections. Nonreligious Americans tend to hold liberal, compassionate, progressive views, and if their full potential could be realized, the nation’s values would improve.Prodding “nones” to become politically active – to show them the importance of democracy involvement – should be a top goal of the secular movement.
When the first Christian evangelical volunteers descended on the religious West Bank settlement of Har Bracha about 10 years ago, offering to harvest grapes for the local Jewish farmers free of charge, not everyone welcomed them with open arms.
